If you’re looking for a warm up tomorrow ahead of the Frieze art fair, may we suggest a visit to the new waterside contemporary gallery in Hoxton? The inaugural show They don’t know why, but they keep doing it, a group affair, asks questions about ideology in a post-ideological reality.
The six artists, Grzegorz Drozd, Javier Rodriguez, Maciek Stępiński, Radek Szlaga, Konrad Smoleński and artist duo Karen Mizra and Brad Butler, reject archaic symbolic structures in favour of something a little less obvious. Visitors can expect works in paint, installation and video. Creating their own visual language, though, surely fosters new, individualized ideologies; a puzzling paradox. They don’t know why, but they keep doing it.
